      Oh gosh, Sharon, this is a real treat!!! And, you made it from a set of ingredients in an RSC contest?? I would have thought this was created by some master chef, it's so delicious! I can honestly say that this is the BEST cream of mushroom soup I've ever eaten! Do be aware that the slightly sour taste that cream cheese imparts is detectable, and some folks I gave it to didn't liket that - I plan to try Sharon's neufchatel suggestion might well remedy that - I'll be trying that next time! A couple of changes that I made: I used close to a lb of portabella mushrooms, because that's the package size I had; I didn't have scallions, so I used fine chopped cipollini onions; I had light herb & garlic cream cheese to use, so used that instead of plain, and I put the roasted garlic in with the stock and cream. (It wasn't ready when the recipe called for it.) While I loved the herb & garlic cream cheese in this, my husband thought it took it over the top, flavour wise, so my recommendation is to make it with plain, which is what I'll be doing next time! Oh, and I had used up all my lemons yesterday, so while I had lemon juice, I didn't have zest. It didn't seem to detract from the flavour. Made for PRMR Tag. Thanks, Sharon!

      I've never made mushroom soup before and I've got to say I've fallen in love with this one. Yes, the fat content is high but oh my the taste is soooo creamy and good. I made it just as directed including the sherry, cornstarch and type of mushrooms and have to say it's one of my favorites of all the recipes I made. Smooth creamy goodness, I did sprinkle the smoked paprika on the top when finished just for appearance sake and loved the way it looked. Served with french bread and a glass of white wine. Great dinner and easy to prepare with clear directions. Made for RSC #15 and good luck to the chef I feel this is a winner.
